Winemaker's Notes

Overflowing with aromas of gooseberry and passionfruit with hints of lime and nettles. The wine is mouth filling with vibrant fruit and mid palate richness, finishing rich and racy with excellent length and crispness.

Our "Cellar Selection" wines place an emphasis on fruit quality and minimal handling results in intensely flavoured, elegant food friendly wines. They are a step up in quality from our "Private Bin" wines.

The fruit for this wine comes from both the Awatere and Wairau Valleys of Marlborough. Timely canopy management activities such as shoot thinning and leaf plucking along with an attention to vine health optimises the opportunity for the ideal vineyard flavours and clean, ripe fruit at harvest. The fruit was harvested in the cool of the night to ensure it arrived at the winery in pristine condition.

Steven Tanzer's International Wine Cellar called it "Dense, lush and sweet, with good depth and complexity to the flavors of grapefruit, pineapple, spices, flowers, herbs and pepper. Very good for this price range."

The wine was worth it at the sale price of $9.99/bottle, but wouldn't at the higher price. Kim Marlborough and Whitehaven are some nice alternatives.
